We live miles apart now and Christmas get togethers are a little more difficult. They live down South, not far from our mother. In recent years, she's needed more and more attention and care and my sisters have done a wonderful job of looking after her. This year, I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation, in a very special (and crafty) way, for all they have done. They've given so much of themselves to care for her, oftentimes following a full day of work and caring for their own families. To Monika and Amy, know that all you have done and are doing doesn't go unnoticed. I love you both. Merry Christmas.
Our local Goodwill had a HUGE tote filled with
these stockings. Each was marked .49 cents.
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
My sisters have very different tastes so I wanted
to reflect that in the way I altered the stockings.
My sister, Amy, is a lover of all things PINK!
This is her stocking.
All the trims and embellies came from
things I had on hand. Really love
how this turned out. It's so girly!
If Amy is a little bit shabby, I'd label my
sister, Monika, a little bit rock and roll!
I think I captured her spunky person-
ality here. :-)
This isn't my style AT ALL, but I really had
fun altering this for her. I made sure to
bling it up quite a bit!
I also altered a couple of small matchboxes
to match their stockings.
Since they live in the South and don't
usually see snow, I thought I'd
send a little their way. :-)

Love how these turned out. Hope they like them! Merry Christmas All!!!
